I Love, Love, Love You Card

Posted on

Hello, Friends!

The challenge at Heart 2 Heart this week is TRUE LOVE!  I have been making lots of children’s and masculine Valentine cards lately and so I finally decided to make a glittery, floral card that is feminine through and through!  I have always loved this heart overlay from Artistry and it looks even prettier cut from Bashful Glitter paper.

I also used Gold Glitter paper, Juniper and Blossom cardstock and the Rose Embossing folder for some background texture.  The sentiment is from a retired Stamp of the Month from last year and the flower and leaf cuts are also from Artistry.

Please visit Heart 2 Heart to see the other beautiful design team projects.  You are always welcome to link up your own TRUE LOVE artwork for everyone to enjoy.

To purchase any of the supplies I used to make this card, please shop HERE.

Happy Valentine’s Day to you all!    Laurie

 


Something NEW at H2H!

Posted on

Happy New Year, Friends!

We are celebrating the New Year with our challenge this week at Heart 2 Heart.  The theme is SOMETHING NEW and I interpreted this by using some NEW products and trying a NEW technique as well as celebrating the NEW year!

I used the beautiful NEW Chelsea Gardens paper collection by Close To My Heart.  This paper will be available for your purchase on January 1 (along with all the other amazing products in the new Seasonal Expressions 1 catalog)!

I also used the NEW (to me) Alphabet Thin Cuts set and coordinating In the Background stamps.  It was so easy to continue the polka dot theme of my background paper on the word “happy” that I cut from the Thin Cuts.  All I did was stamp the polka dot background on Glacier cardstock before I cut the letters.  Then I added a little Charcoal ink to the edges of each letter and popped them up with dimensional foam.  Very easy and a NEW technique with NEW products that I’m sure I will use a lot on future projects!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope your NEW year is off to a wonderful start and that you have many NEW adventures awaiting you!   Laurie


Punny Fun at Heart 2 Heart!

Posted on

Hello, Friends!

Heart 2 Heart Challenges is all about PUNS this week!  This cute little bear is from the Punny Pals stamp and Thin Cut set.  I thought he went together nicely with the Beary Christmas paper pack, especially when I added a Santa hat!  I chose to use the “You are beary special to me” stamp along with “Merry Christmas” for the inside sentiment.  I’m planning to give these to my Close To My Heart Club members along with a little gift for Christmas.

Be sure to check out the other PUNNY projects at Heart 2 Heart.  Then link up your own artwork for everyone to enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by!  Make it an awesome day!    Laurie

Hello, Friends!

The challenge at Heart 2 Heart this week is Silver and Gold!  You can use the Close To My Heart Silver and Gold paper pack or just the colors of silver and gold.  Use metallic or glitter papers or both!

I added a bit of all of the above!  The papers are from the Silver and Gold paper pack along with silver and gold metallic paper and glittery silver shimmer trim.  The stamped image (First Noel C1688) is embossed with gold embossing powder and the black ribbon is even trimmed with gold.

Feeling BASHFUL at Heart 2 Heart!

Posted on

Hello, Friends!

I am hosting the challenge at Heart 2 Heart this week and it is all about BASHFUL–the color, the feeling or even Snow White’s dwarf friend!

I chose to make a non-traditional Christmas card using Bashful, the CTMH Color of the Year along with some paper from the Silver and Gold collection.  I just love the look of the pale pink Bashful paired with Black and Pewter.  I cut the poinsettia from the new You Are Here cartridge and added some Bashful glitter paper and Bashful pearls as embellishments.

Please stop by Heart 2 Heart Challenges to see the other beautiful design team projects.  I hope you can squeeze in a little crafting time this Thanksgiving week to enter our Bashful challenge.  You have until November 30 to link up your own projects.

Vines and Twine at Heart 2 Heart

Hello Friends!

The challenge this week at Heart 2 Heart is Vines and Twines!  I chose to make a Christmas/Winter card using some Glacier Thick Twine to decorate my snowman and the sentiment panel.  The Cricut cuts are from You Are Here and Flower Market, both from Close To My Heart.  The background paper is from the Beary Christmas paper collection and I used Galcier, Fern, Chocolate and New England Ivy cardstock along with White and Sea Glass glitter paper.

Please stop by Heart 2 Heart to see the other design team projects and then be sure to play along with our Vines and Twines challenge!  You also still have time to join in the previous October challenges:  Under the Weather, BeYOUtiful, and Mad About Plaid.  We love it when you share!!


Be-YOU-tiful at Heart 2 Heart!

Posted on

Hello Friends!

The challenge at Heart 2 Heart this week is BEAUTIFUL!  Now that could mean a lot of things from beautiful nature, beautiful people, beautiful moments or even beautiful paper and stamps.  I chose to use a Cricut cut from the new digital cartridge Hello, USA, and celebrate America the Beautiful!

This cartridge features 60 layered images, one of each of the 50 states, plus 10 extra general images about the U.S.  It has flowers, slogans and other icons specific to each state.  The layered overlays are especially nice!

I hadn’t had a chance to use this cartridge yet, so this week’s challenge provided the perfect opportunity!  Take a look at the details HERE.

Please stop over to Heart 2 Heart to see the other design team projects which are all BEAUTIFUL!  Then link up your own beautiful projects for everyone to enjoy–we love it when you share!   Laurie
